Who's the workshop for: All Ages
Slacklining provides an addictive challenge with rewards that deliver a heightened sense of personal achievement. Private coaching in the early stages of slacklining sets up an accelerated learning pathway to quickly master the art of balance. As a rough guide; a good instructor can teach you in 3 sessions, what would take you up to 6 months to learn on your own. With 3 years of advanced teaching experience, Slackline Australia Instructor Rob Brooks can also help you to achieve your slacklining goals, by dissolving your mental and physical blocks.
What's covered in the workshop: In your private session you will learn slacklining fundamentals that are tailored specifically to your personal goals. This can include; knowledge of slackline equipment, different setup techniques (with or without trees), mounting & dismounting techniques, balance holds with correct posture, walking (forwards, backwards), static tricks (warrior, sitting, laying, kneeling...), correction of currently existing habits which are progress limiting, breathing techniques and mindfulness training.

Every session I have spent slacklining with Rob has taught me more about slacklining and my connection with the line. He is a superb teacher!” – Alysha Wreford.
“Rob has an infectious enthusiasm for slacklining, and instructs in a supportive manner. He identifies flaws in one's technique and knows how to correct them one at a time without being critical or inducing frustration. I feel that his instructing technique has helped me to pick up the basics and fine tune my slacklining very quickly.” – Sundance Bilson-Thompson.
“Rob is an excellent instructor, always quick with a suggestion for improvement and easily modifies his teaching to cater for different people and their individual strengths/weaknesses.” – Julia Double.
“Within 2 weeks Rob was able to help improve my slacklining tremendously. He has a keen eye for picking up on the smallest of errors and finds ways to help you change these bad habits into good ones.” – Kellie Hoffman.
“Hugely encouraging and welcoming of beginners, Rob has a positive attitude that will make you fall in love with slacklining. He is also incredibly knowledgeable in advanced technique, gear and rigging, all of which he relishes in teaching to others and broadening the educated “slack community”.” – Raife Gehren.
“Rob is great fun to learn from and genuinely wishes to see people improve. He has an uncanny ability to pick someone’s physical and mental barriers on the line, and help them to break them down and take their slacklining to the next level.” – Annie Drahos.
“Rob Brooks is the centre of gravity for slacklining in South Australia and has grown a thriving community who have developed individually to advanced mastery. This growth has not left the new beginners behind, but rather he has become a trainer of trainers and implemented a professional framework across all sectors from beach lines to high lining with safety always paramount in teaching, equipment and technique. Without this foundation the growth witnessed would not have occurred without Dr Rob.” - Tim Muehlberg, Founder RAVSTASS.
“Rob is an outstanding instructor. I find his lessons well-structured and his directions easy to follow. He is not only great at troubleshooting technique, but also mental processes and barriers. Rob always makes safety a priority and he’s friendly and approachable.” - Melanie Pierides
